Governor calls for specific budget cuts to be picked

After a 3% across the board budget cut was called for, Governor Mark Sanford is calling for specific budget cuts to be made instead.

ABC News 4 reports, here's an excerpt:
The letter sent to legislators last week repeats Sanford's calls that legislators should avoid across-the-board cuts.

Sanford spokesman Joel Sawyer says it amounts to an informal request for them to return to Columbia.

Earlier this week The Post and Courier reported on growing bickering between the governor and the Legislature.
